Sometimes you think you know people. Take for instance my friends Chris, Jerrod and Josh. I’ve known each for several years now. I’ve gotten to know each one fairly well. I thought I knew their backgrounds, their likes/dislikes and other personality quirks.
Then I learn randomly one day that these three assholes ran their own fully-functioning wrestling promotion while in college. Here I am, a big time wrestling fan, with no clue that the guys I call my friends are sitting on this golden nugget of information. I discover it when I stumble upon their web site, which is filled with old stories, sweet videos, rosters of former wrestlers and other items of total greatness.
And here I am totally clueless to any of this. I have so many questions. How did you come up with the idea for this? How did you spread the word about it? How big was your fan base? How did you get so many dudes coordinated for the events?
I was in a fraternity in college and we couldn’t pry more than five members at a time away from their succubus girlfriends to do anything more than organize a pick up basketball game. And here you fellows are putting on wrestling shows!
For me, finding out about this was like having a long-time friend randomly one day throw out that he once got invited to Cowboys training camp, played minor league ball for the Yankees or had a gang-bang with a supermodel, her twin sister and her mom.
So, thanks guys, for leaving me in the dark. I don’t know if I can ever forgive you.
Chris – I still want to attend your show in March. Ringside would be preferable.
